I saw this Power Puff Girls Birthday Cake on one of Debbie Brown's books although I made some amendments to give it a personalized touch and since my niece is a big fan of the Power Puff Girls, I decided to do it for her 4th Birthday.
Two days before making the cake I did the models of the Power Puff Girls with some modelling paste so that they will be ready when making the actual cake. They are not difficult to do but they are so tiny that you need a good dose of patience.
The cake is basically the bed on which the Power Puff Girls are on so all you have to do is bake a rectangular cake, slice it in 3 layers and fill with buttercream. Colour three pieces of sugarpaste in 3 different pastel colours and cover the cake with them in order to do the blanket.
I used a piece of pink modelling paste for the bed's head board and stuck some pink sugarpaste hearts onto it. I made the pillows out of white sugarpaste and did all the bedroom accessories-carpets, slippers, toys and lampshades also with sugarpaste. I cut 2 cupcakes to form two round comodes and covered them with purple sugarpaste and put the 2 lampshades on them.
Last but not least I laid the Power Puff Girls on the bed. I think this cake is ideal for little girls because of its colours and the lovely characters.

My daughter was very interested in China and wanted a Chinese theme for her birthday. We decided on a Mulan cake but I couldn't find any Mulan cakes out there to get ideas. So, I forged one alone.
This cake was my most simple as far as construction goes, but it took me the longest to make because of the detailed frosting. The most time was spent mixing all the different colors. It took me three tries to get the right color for her skin tone.
I'm not a very good artist, so here's how I did it: I made an overhead photocopy of a picture of Mulan the size of the top of the cake. On the reverse side, I piped tinted piping gel, copying the lines of the image. This I inverted on top of a pre frosted base and then lifted. It didn't come out perfect but was enough of a guideline to follow. I smoothed the frosting on her face with a butter knife frequently dipped in warm water. Then I piped all of her features with my smallest frosting tip.
The yin / yang symbols on the sides of the cake (visible in other photos) are Oreo cookies with fondant cut outs. I was very proud of this cake and my daughter absolutely loved it.
My son had to pick the hardest theme for his 5th birthday - "Land Before Time", I mean these characters are from when I was a kid. Lucky me I happened to find the whole set of 1980's McDonald's toys at a garage sale for $2 (had to go online to find party supplies though).
The bottom cake is white and the top cake is dark chocolate. I made MMF and colored brown and green. I used one of his dinosaur toys to imprint tracks around the fondant ribbon around the middle of the cake. He hasn't seen this Land Before Time Cake Design yet, hope he likes it!
I just randomly found this site, and just happened to have made a Kim Possible cake for my husband. (We both really enjoy the cartoon!)
I didn't use a pattern or anything. I just enjoy looking at a photo and "drawing" it on the cake. This photo was on the internet, and I thought it was cute. I mixed the colors by using food coloring in the frosting and used a toothpick to refine the edges of the lines.
